This year, 13 students have been selected for the NYSCAME All-County music festival. Out of those students, seven have also been selected for the NYSSMA All-State festival.  

NYSCAME All-County is extremely selective, selecting only those 11th and 12th grade musicians ranked with the highest NYSSMA scores across Suffolk County. Selected students will take part in three intensive rehearsal sessions that culminate in a concert on Nov. 17 at 7:30 p.m. at Hauppauge High School.

NYSSMA All-State is based on NYSSMA scores and how those scores compare to other students at the same level across the entire state. The seven students who were selected as All-State musicians will travel to Rochester from Nov. 30¬¬   Dec. 3 to participate in intensive rehearsals, culminating in weekend concerts at the Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre.

"These students are the best of the best. They are extraordinarily disciplined and they're incredibly deserving of this recognition,” Music Department Coordinator Daniel Bilawsky said. “Their achievements are a testament to their hard work and the guidance they receive from their music teachers."
